About research: Although the growth of unwanted hair or hirsutism is a harmless condition, many people find it bothersome and embarrassing. Maintaining stem cell features of dermal papilla cells is a critical biological process that maintains the high rate of hair growth. Therefore, a decreased stemness of dermal papilla cells leads to impaired hair growth.

The sense of kinship and warmth found in the Chula community is priceless and a treasure worth keeping.
